This is gorgeous - like some similar frames that were offered for sale right here... ;-)

But 50cm c-c seat tube and 53 cm top tube - any idea what size of rider and type of handlebars this is intended for? It's not the kind of road bike geometry I'd know how to interpret...

Yes, I offered an identical frame overhere about a year ago. I think the bike originally came with a blend of drops with straight bar. Somewhat later butterfly bars became the standard with Koga.

You can view the bike in the catalogues source on the Koga site.

Wow - have just looked it up and on the brochure page 26 at http://www.koga.com/downloads/docs/Koga ... e_1992.pdf and there is indeed a combined drop/straight handlebar. First time I've seen such a thing!
